Part 31 - Motherwell (H)

You win again! As the Bee Gees might say.

Fresh from our midweek triumph against Celtic, the next game couldn't come quickly enough. When the Steelmen arrived at Rugby Park on the Saturday, Killie were in no mood for their nonsense this time round.

That said. The visitors did have the best chances of the opening exchanges. Mickey Weir producing a quality stop from Melly, quickly followed by Tommy 'BOOOOOO' Coyne cheating to win a penalty under pressure from The Legend Dylan Kerr.

Owen Coyle strolled up to the spot, and Meldrum did the business, not only saving the penalty, but getting right back up to block any chance of a rebound.

HALF TIME: Kilmarnock 0 - 0 Motherwell

From a corner on the right, the ball was scrambled by the visitors to The Legend Dylan Kerr, who, in his own inimitable fashion, set up Colin McKee, who scampered down the left and knocked in a cross for Wright. 

One touch to bring it out from under him, and one to lash it into the net, all while under the close attention of two defenders just shows that he should have had eleventy three Scotland caps to his name. Had Bunion been in France, we'd have won the chuffing thing.

We nearly doubled our advantage late on. Legendary Puppet Master, Dylan Kerr, was ripping 'Well open down the left. He lobbed over a cross for Jim McIntyre but, with the keeper and a random defender all over him like one of David Byrne's zoot suits, McIntyre's header went just past the post.

Still. Three more points in the bag which saw Bobby's boys leapfrog both Hibs & Motherwell into the dizzying, nosebleed-inducing heights of 7th.

Next up? We'd be defending our mini unbeaten run against the league leaders, in their own back court...
